Cows can have such strong expressions in their faces, they have a way of looking at you: curious, interested, haughty, frightened, timid, relaxed; and this is what Veronica likes to capture in paints.


Add a lovely low afternoon light and the cows look very sculptural to her. She loves the way the sun highlights their sometimes quite exaggerated bone structures. When she is painting her subjects – aiming at making them look quite 3D – she takes great joy in adding and taking away the paint, building up the layers of her large watercolours; a process she likens to sculpting with paint.


Veronica is a member of the Chalk Gallery (page 136) in Lewes.
